I'd briefly toyed with the idea of cutouts until I took a minute to evaluate everything. One of the things that swayed me was reading and hearing about issues people have had with solenoid failure leaving the cutouts partially open, etc. Not to say that it's a common occurrence, but the possibility is there.
Oh what is 500 or 600 when we spent 5 or 6 K on wheels, But it is fun as all get out when you hit the button and here that cam hitting a lick.

Dont worry Randy you will know that feeling Sunday , well Saturday afternoon Unfortunately from both sides, Bonnie and the car But there is a cure for that

If I had to pick the cam and stall vs. the cutouts, I'd def. do the cam and stall. I consider the cutouts to be a toy.
I agree 100%.

Although on back-to-back dyno pulls, I picked up 8 rwhp and 8 torque with them open. So, there is a modest gain. I'd open them if I was going down the track.

Speak for yourself. I wouldn't spend that much on wheels. $3k would be as high as I'd pay for any set of wheels. I will say that you have a killer looking set, but I couldn't make myself pay that much for something that doesn't give me additional horsepower.

I agree with you guys about them being fun to have, but I couldn't talk myself into it. I'm glad now because my car is loud enough with my exhaust, cam and long tubes.

Well Randy and Terri twisted my arm so bad I had to have surgery... That is my story and I am sticking to it.......

Oh and trust ALL OF US if we had it to do over again neither would we.

It's like that car commercial where the car gets scared and drips oil all over the road.

LMAO!!! I really wanted the Concave 5 last year until I was quoted $6k for them. If I were more of a car show type person I MAY have done it, but I don't plan to enter any shows and I can live with a cheaper and more subtle wheel.

I'm just hoping I get my quote soon on some 18" wheel options so I can get rid of these 20s.

That's actually not as bad as I expected.

Did they tell you the expected power numbers?
